The short and chilly days of winter are an ideal time to curl up with a book or take in a film. Over three weeks (Jan. 24 - Feb. 8), the French Department at Boise State University is partnering with the French government to present a series of films highlighting Gallic culture and shining a spotlight on diversity for Black History Month.

Now in its second year, screenings are paired with faculty talks and a discussion once the movie ends. Organized by Boise State French Prof. Mariah Devereux Herbeck, the festival is free and open to the public, with all screenings starting at 6 p.m. in Skaggs Hall on the Boise State campus.

Ahead of the first screening at this year's festival, Prof. Devereux Herbeck stopped by the Boise State Public Radio studios to talk about the event's evolution and some of the films that will be shown.
